Flowers, Antiques and Useless Crap

by Anne

Just a short stroll up from Will Wyatt Court you can find one of London’s most intense markets. The Colombia Road Flower Market. One little street, a billion flowers, crazy sellers yelling all kinds of weird shit, and a whole heap of people smelling the roses. It is a pretty amazing experience. For sure a must if you are to visit London. Even if you hate flowers.And it’s only happening on early Sunday mornings.

A billion flowers!

Busy sales people

Sunflowers, I knew the name of these!

 

After a loud, but pretty stroll through the market, Portobello Road was next on the plan. We headed up to Notting Hill, had lunch and then headed towards the famous road markets.

Here we are!

The street is filled with stalls, selling antiques, used clothing, fruit and vegies, art prints, new goods, jewelry and anything imaginable actually. Here’s some photoes.

I was there! Amongst the pastel colored terasse houses.

Singer Heaven

Antique cameras of all sorts

And useless nick nacks...

It was a great little stroll, perfect for a lazy Sunday. I even bought this years first x-mas pressie! Not telling tho! And, there were nice cafes and bars, cuisine from all over the world, even a Spanish Food Market. Must go back for a special lunch one day.
